State Services for California Indians. FY 1980-81.
Through cooperative efforts of state and federal officials and with concerned California Indians, State program delivery systems are constantly being monitored, evaluated, and adjusted to assure increasingly fair services for California Indians. The report divides State services into five general categories: cultural preservation; educational opportunities; employment, training, and marketing assistance; health and social services; and housing and community development. The text reveals: Native American culture permeates all state efforts on behalf of American Indians; a tripling of American Indians in the student population and an even greater increase in American Indian teachers and administrators; 48% of the Indians applying for jobs through the State Employment Development Department were placed; $9 million dollars in federal funds were administered through local agencies over the last 6 years for housing repair and construction; and in addition to greater access to federal program assistance, California Indians are involving themselves to a greater degree in pursuit of their own best interests. Statistical tables and lists of resource personnel are incorporated throughout the report. (Author/AH)
